Colin Kaepernick Reportedly Files Grievance Against NFL Owners for Collusion

Former NFL player Sean Gilbert proposed, in connection with his effort to become the NFLPA's executive director, the potential termination of the CBA in early 2015, based on collusion arising from the funding rule applicable to guaranteed contracts.

Kaepernick has struggled to find a starting or backup job in any of the 32 NFL teams, leading many to believe that the league has blacklisted the free agent quarterback. Teams have repeatedly signed less promising quarterbacks over Kaepernick, and many argued he was being passed over for political reasons, even before President Trump ignited the controversy with his remarks last month.

"We can confirm that this morning we filed a grievance under the CBA on behalf of Colin Kaepernick", lawyers Geragos & Geragos confirmed in a subsequent statement.

Per Freeman, Kaepernick has hired attorney Mark Geragos to help him in the legal situation.

Corriere dello Sport put some strong arguments forward, Mazzarri is a safe pair of hands, clubs see him as a steady option. The Toffees are now 16th in the table, just two points above the relegation zone after a dismal start to the season.

In response at National Football League games over the next few days, many more players kneeled during the anthem or locked arms with teammates and in some cases also with their team's owners.

"Our union has a duty to assist Mr. Kaepernick as we do all players and we will support him", they said in a separate statement. Perhaps he has an email, text, social media message, video, audio recording, hand-written note or sworn testimony from a witness. Under the league's Collective Bargaining Agreement teams and the NFL are forbidden from coming together to deprive a player of employment.

La Canfora reported last Sunday that Kaepernick is "not quitting" and is willing to prove himself as a quality option. Protecting all athletes from such collusive conduct is what compelled Mr. Kaepernick to file his grievance.

The ramifications would be enormous, and historical. Such a precedent threatens all patriotic Americans and harkens back to our darkest days as a nation. Not signing such a disruptive, toxic player is a no brainer and owners didn't have to conspire to realize individually the damage that would be done to their brand if Kaepernick was on their team.
